Apple Sticky Buns

We raise wheat, and I bake a lot of bread using our own flour. This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I like it because it's fast and easy to make.

    Excellent. I have made these for 3 years on Christmas day--as a newly married wife, it's my new family tradition and my husband loves these! Not to sweet, and very moist.
